Coming of Age of the Mission Critical Edge

By Pavan Singh | VP Product Management on May 24, 2022 10:50:46 AM

The Mission Critical Edge (MCE) is at a transitionary or “coming of age” stage in its lifecycle. Note that this is a Lynx term that I had coined two years ago. If you see references to “Mission Critical Intelligent Edge”, they really round the same phenomenon. Mission Critical Edge refers to the infrastructure required to design, develop, deploy, and maintain mission critical systems such as avionics, satellites, autonomous vehicles, and critical infrastructure. The mission critical systems are making the transition from being inherently embedded to now requiring the best of both embedded and edge worlds:

Embedded
Deterministic real-time and immutability, safety certifiability, and security compliance, delivered as standalone operating systems based or bare-metal workloads

Edge
Combining embedded and with cloud connected and dynamic workloads such as machine learning, security monitoring that require immutable virtual machines running next to containerized or bare-metal based applications
